Process Piping - Design, Fabrication, Inspection and Maintenance Course


Our Process Piping - Design, Fabrication, Inspection and Maintenance Course, constitutes a five-day Training to bring all theoretical knowledge and experience into Industrial practical application. The scope of the course is to introduce participants to the ASME B31.3 which provides the requirements for the design, fabrication, and testing of process piping. The course is available at a reasonable price with custom-designed features according to your unique needs and delivered by extremely experienced Trainers.

Why Join Our Course


Piping systems convey fluids from one location to another. Piping systems include pipes, fittings, flanges, gaskets, bolting, valves, and pipe supports. Failure of any of these components in the oil and gas industry could result in a major loss and environmental damage. It is therefore imperative to adhere to the relevant standards at the design stage, operate, inspect and maintain piping systems as necessary to reduce the risk of unforeseen costs and damages to the environment.

The course will review the basic requirements of the ASME B31.3 Code for Process Piping. Furthermore, participants will be introduced to process equipment piping requirements such as pumps, heaters, heat exchangers, compressors, etc.

Participants will also have the opportunity to solve, sample problems, and exercises to practice the application of the topics discussed.
